TITLE 26
BANKS AND BANKING
CHAPTER 21
IDAHO CREDIT UNION ACT
26-2129.  Reserve requirements. (a) At the end of each accounting period the gross income shall be determined. From this amount there shall be set aside, as a regular reserve against losses on loans and against such other losses as may be specified in rules prescribed under this chapter, sums in accordance with the following:
(1)  A credit union in operation for more than four (4) years and having assets of five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) or more shall set aside: (i) ten per cent (10%) of gross income until the regular reserve plus the allowance for loan loss account shall equal four per cent (4%) of the total of outstanding loans and risk assets, then (ii) five per cent (5%) of gross income until the regular reserve plus the allowance for loan loss account shall equal six per cent (6%) of the total of outstanding loans and risk assets.
(2)  A credit union in operation less than four (4) years or having assets of less than five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) shall set aside: (i) ten per cent (10%) of gross income until the regular reserve plus the allowance for loan loss account shall equal seven and one-half per cent (7.5%) of the total of outstanding loans and risk assets, then (ii) five per cent (5%) of gross income until the regular reserve plus the allowance for loan loss account shall equal ten per cent (10%) of the total of outstanding loans and risk assets.
(3)  Risk assets do not include loans fully secured by member savings and loans guaranteed by an agency of the state or federal government, to the extent of such guarantee.
(4)  Whenever the regular reserve plus the allowance for loan loss account falls below the stated per cent of the total outstanding loans and risk assets, it shall be replenished by regular contributions in such amounts as may be needed to maintain the stated reserve goals.
(b)  The director, in his discretion, may decrease the reserve requirements set forth in subsection (a) of this section when in his opinion such a decrease is necessary or desirable. The director may also require special reserves to protect the interests of members either by rule if it is to be generally applied, or by order for an individual credit union in a particular case.
